Graduation Pics to Come Soon!

For my Uncle Wes

Dear Uncle Wes,

Even though you are no longer here with us we continue to think and talk about you daily. Right before you died I was able to have a few minutes alone with you and was able to tell you just what you meant to me. I'm not sure if you heard me or not so I just wanted to take a minute and write it here.

You and Aunt Sylvia are in my memories from the very first one. I remember coming to your house and climbing your tree or coming and sitting on your lap. My favorite memories are of the ones when we went on vacation together. I loved that motor home. The best part of the summer was that one week with the 2 of you when we were altogether. The saddest part of moving to venezuela was leaving the 2 of you behind. I know that I didn't tell you enough but I loved you. Even in your roughness I knew you loved me to. I won't forget you and I'll tell my kids all about you. THanks for being you thank you for loving me.
I know that your last days here were filled with pain and I'm so glad that you are finally at peace. So as you go on up there in the midst of perfection in the midst of our Saviour, I will keep treking on here waiting for the day when we'll see eachother again.
I love you and you are greatly missed!
THanks to my friend Stephanie she has made me aware of other people blogs. People who greatly need our prayers right now. Me and my children are now trying to pray for these people daily. One that had me in tears today was someone that I just read about on Stephanies blog (you can see her blog by clicking on ) It was about the Mathenia family. Her name was Amber Mathenia and she died last week from a car accident. She had 2 small children and a husband. Her and her family were missionaries in Ethiopia. Even though I have never met her I am deeply touched by what her friends and family had to say about her. Over and over again people said she loved the Lord in everything she did. My heart goes out to her family and my prayers to.
We need to live our lives as if we will not have another second. It seems that everywhere I look in this world anymore is pain and suffering. Sometimes it seems so overwhelming and yet at the same time you know pain and suffering are all part of our lives.
If i sound like i'm rambling i'm sorry. I'm not a good writer and yet there are times where I just need to do something with my thoughts or explode.
Sometimes life is overwhelming and yet we know God is still in control. My point is just remember to pray for the others out there don't become so wrapped up in our own lives (as painful as they may be at times) that we forget about all the others out there.
